CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - A Clovis police officer was speeding during his lunch break when his vehicle ran a stop sign and collided with a pickup truck, killing a woman, according to information in court records.
Police released audio recordings of Officer Stephen Gallegos' radio transmissions Friday to the Clovis News Journal. No charges have been filed.
According to court records, data collected by the patrol unit's airbag showed Gallegos was traveling 58 mph four seconds before the Nov. 17 crash, then slowed to 53 mph and sped up to 56 mph one second before the crash. Gallegos was accelerating at the time of impact.
The posted speed limit along the street is 35 mph.
A Clovis woman, 56-year-old Mary Castillo, died and the pickup's driver was critically injured. Gallegos wasn't hurt.
